No joke trying to figure this downloading and ultimately burning "stuff" is going to break me and my man up!

1: somehow I wound up being able to download whole shows shn...lossless.

2: I know I need to to do something to the file????

3: I have downloaded smart ftp.

What do I do now?

Easy there. Calm down. It's just a computer.

Towards the top of the Live Music Archive home page, in a box on the left, you'll find a link to a list of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) ( ). Start there, and look for the questions "How Can I Listen to SHN Files" and "How Can I Burn SHN Files to CD as Audio Tracks." That should help.

In very broad outline: assuming you're on a Windows PC and you have downloaded an entire show, it is probably in a big file ending in ".zip" Double-click that file, and it should expand into a folder full of files ending in ".shn". (If nothing happens, you may need to install Winzip or some similar "zip" utility). Once you have the .shn files, you can download software that will play them or burn them to CD. Or you can download software that will de-compress the shn files into WAV files, which you can use to make conventional musc CDs.

If you get stuck, remember that you can always search this help forum to see if somebody has already asked your question and received an answer. Just use the search box at the top of the page (set the menu to the right of the search box to "Forums"). And you can always try Google to learn about unfamiliar terms. If these resources don't answer all your questions, they should help enough that you'll be able to ask something more specific than "tell me everything."
